How to Thrive in the Heating Oil Business with Bioheat Blended Fuel
Thursday, September 21
11 a.m.-12 Noon EDT
Times are tough for many heating oil retailers as usage of the fuel drops and more customers switch to natural gas.
Fuel Oil News and REG are hosting a webinar that will show how heating oil companies are finding Bioheat blended fuel — which is biodiesel blended with traditional heating oil — to be the solution they’ve been looking for. Learn about the economic value of biodiesel and the infrastructure that supplies the Northeast, and hear from a heating oil retailer who has seen his business prosper since switching to Bioheat blended fuel.
RAY HART, founder of Hart Home Comfort, one of the premier heating and cooling companies in the Long Island and New York City metropolitan area. Hart Home Comfort started as a cash on delivery heating oil company nearly 40 years ago before expanding into the diverse company it is today. Hart will talk about how Bioheat blended fuel has helped his business continue to thrive, how he implemented biodiesel into his fuel offerings, and the positive customer reactions to the cleaner-burning fuel.
BARRY KNOX, Director, Northeast Region, REG, has more than 30 years of experience in the petroleum industry. Barry has served as a board member of many leading industry organizations, including the New England Fuel Institute (NEFI), the Massachusetts Energy Marketers Association (MEMA) and the National Oilheat Research Alliance (NORA). Barry will discuss trends in the heating oil industry, how the Northeast is supplied biodiesel and the infrastructure that is in place to get it to dealers and the positive economics that make Bioheat blended fuel a good choice for heating oil retailers and their customers.
